I got this off the Montgomery Binnys single shelf and tried it at my old neighbor house. It poured a slight hazy yellow with thin white head that is not leaving any lace. The scent had faint grain. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it is an ok beer.

I suppose this could be in the Adjunct style, but that probably unfairly condemns it to ratings hell.
I like Off Duty as just a pleasant beer that was soft and went well with leftovers for lunch. (It does its job just like the first responders that the beer honors.)

I will agree that Off Duty Looks average. And the Smells are mostly a mix of cereal, which probably argues well for the Adjunct category. But Taste is quite pleasant, doesn't try to do too much... just does its job. And if I wasn't direct earlier, it is wonderfully soft in the mouth; cleansing the palate, but not scrubbing it clean with harsh bubbles.

Have it again ? Let me think about that. Too many choices, too much waistline.

Pours a hazy gold color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of pale malt, slight sweet malt, hint of grass, and slight citrus hops. Fits the style of an American Adjunct Lager. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of pale malt, slight sweet malt, hint of grass, hint of yeast, and slight citrus hops. Overall, weak appearance, average aroma and body, but good feel.

From a twelve ounce can, this beer is intended to honor police and emergency responders. It is a hazy pale straw color with a slim but frothy white head. The aroma is dainty cereal with a bit of malt and earthy hops. Light in flavor and smooth on the palate. Cereal note in the taste as well. Straightforward and unremarkable.
